the end of the world running club

I can’t pass up a post apocalyptic story. I believe I heard of this one through Stephen King’s Twitter account. For what should be obvious reasons, I always look into his entertainment recommendations. In this story, a large number of meteors struck the earth, which created the post apocalyptic scenario. The main character was separated from his family and ran across Britain in order to find them.

The author, Adrian Walker, was quite a good writer. Some of the prose was impressive. That said while I did enjoy the story, I liked the first half, which was more of an apocalyptic story, than the 2nd half, which involved a lot of running. Also, the ending was ambiguous and I could have done with a little more closure.

My rating: 3.5/5
